Nice work! Heaps of great information in there. Quite a lot of focus on the American market, given we're talking about a Japanese car sold globally. But in a way that's apt since they were actively trying to break into that market as well as appealing to buyers at home. I particularly enjoyed reading about the design's focus on utility. I feel like that's long been a core pillar of the Zs (until the Z33) - utility and usefulness over raw sports-car ability, and that it's always helped the car find buyers. IIRC, The Z32 outsold the RX-7, 3000GT, Supra and NSX sales combined. It may be remembered as the lesser car of the era, but it sold like hotcakes. And part of it is due to the flexibility in seating and roof styles, which was clearly intended for the Zs right from the very start.
